2016 福特新嘉年华SE:配备齐全的经济型车
2016 Ford Fiesta SE: Economy Cars Don’t Feel So Cheap Anymore



不知道从哪天开始,汽车制造商决定哪怕是最低端的车型也要让它们装备精良,让开车人有兴驾驶,而不是一部只能把你从东挪到西的机器。福特2016年的新嘉年华延续了这一口头禅。

Somewhere along the way, car makers decided that even their lowest end models would be well equipped and fun to drive, instead of just being dull point A to B machines. Ford has vigilantly carried on this mantra with their new 2016 Ford Fiesta SE.

 
大中报试验的新嘉年华SE从$ 21,187元起价。该车的性价比较高,功能不仅有加热座椅,后视盲区镜,GPS导航,福特的SYNC高级声控车载多媒体通讯娱乐系统,内置导航和自动换挡。

The Fiesta SE model that Chinese News tested started at $21,187. And you get a lot of car for that price—heated seats, blind spot mirrors, GPS navigation, Ford’s SYNC infotainment system, built-in navigation, and an automatic transmission. 

 
从第一眼看上去,新嘉年华的外观并不低廉。虽然它不是福特的最抢眼的车,但它具有跑车的流畅曲线。

From first glance, the new Fiesta SE doesn’t disappoint in the looks departments. While it isn’t Ford’s most eye-catching car, it has the grooves and streaks of a sporty hatchback.

 
通过新嘉年华, 福特显然试图向你推销一个令人兴奋的驾驶体验。嘉年华的引擎转速高,减震系统感觉像跑车,方向盘很紧但非常精确。它虽然以跑车概念设计,但福特却想办法提高了燃油经济性能。在高速路上奔驰时,嘉年华耗油只有6公升 / 100公里。在城市里时,油耗接近9L / 100KM。这一切都归功于它省油的1.6L发动机。

Ford is definitely trying to sell you an exciting driving experience with the Fiesta. The Fiesta loves to rev, the suspension is sporty, and the steering is tight and precise. Despite its sportiness, Ford has managed to balance performance with strong fuel economy. On longer high way treks, I was averaging just under 6L/100 KM, and in the city, I was averaging closer to 9L/100KM, all thanks to a fuel efficient 1.6L engine.

 
然而,追求“生态动感”是有代价的。时速超过110 KM / 小时以上时,该车不但会将1.6L的发动机推到3000RPM的转速,加大了噪音。新嘉年华僵硬的运动型悬挂,使得路面的每个颠簸和裂缝都会被感觉到。虽然这两个缺点都不是短程通勤的问题,但这可能不利于长途驾驶。

However, all of this ‘eco-sportiness’ comes at a cost. Breaking 110 KM/H on the highway pushes the small 1.6L engine over 3000RPM and causes quite a racket in the front. And thanks to the stiff sporty suspension, you feel every bump and crack in the road. While both of these shortcomings aren’t an issue on short commutes, it’s on the longer road trips that these issues can start to plague your Fiesta driving experience.

 
因为嘉年华较小的车身,它是城市驾驶的朋友。不过,嘉年华的身型意味着有限的腿部空间。驾驶员和副驾驶员之间少于一臂的距离。后排座的腿部空间几乎是不存在的。然而,嘉年华的后备厢空间充足,足以承载一个家庭的露营备品。

Because of the Fiesta’s size, it’s a fantastic car for city driving as it fits comfortably into small parking spaces. But the Fiesta’s small stature means huge trade-offs in terms of leg room and spaciousness. In the driver and passenger seats, things can get quite cramped as you’ll be less than arm’s length from everything. Passengers in the back fare much worse as leg room is nearly non-existent. However, the Fiesta’s hatchback allows for more trunk space and is definitely large enough for a day or two of camping with the family.



 
也许嘉年华最佳的功能之一是福特新的同步信息娱乐系统。它拥有高度敏感的语音识别能力。包括在我们的试验车里的是卫星导航,这是$ 800元的附加功能。然而,我发现导航系统难以使用。TomTom的GPS可能会是一个更为经济实惠的选择。 

Perhaps one of the best features of the Fiesta SE is Ford’s new SYNC 3 infotainment system. It’s highly responsive, streamlined, and has strong voice recognition capabilities. Also included in our test-drive model was the satellite navigation, which is optional for $800. However, the navigation system is hopelessly unintuitive and difficult to use. A mounted TomTom GPS is a far more affordable option.

 
虽然嘉年华的装备精良,但你不能对其有太多的奢侈指望。嘉年华的内部装饰还是显得粗糙,使得嘉年华看上去还是部便宜车。比方说,方向盘的金属装饰边角由于打磨不彻底,差点把我的手划破。另外,仪表板,中控台和驾驶员座椅调节杠杆均使用了廉价的塑料配件。但就车本身价格而言,这些问题几乎可以忽略。 

While the car comes well equipped, don’t expect too much luxury. A lot of the interior finishing is unrefined and certainly makes the Fiesta feel like a cheap car. For instance, I found jagged corners on the plastic steering wheel cover that I almost cut myself on several times.  The dash, centre console, and driver seat adjustment levers is by and large made from cheap and flimsy plastic. But these are minor nuances considering what you’re getting for the price.

 
总之,福特嘉年华SE是一个配备齐全,价格合理的小型车的杰作。虽然该车难载四个成年人,车内装饰有点粗糙,但它绝对能满足一个有孩子的小型家庭的日常需要。

In sum, the Ford Fiesta SE is a brilliant little car that comes well-equipped at a phenomenal price. You won’t be squeezing in four adults and it is a little rough around the edges (both literally, and figuratively), but it’s perfect for short daily commutes and for a small family with kids.
